There is a big boom every five seconds and a constant smell of sulfur every time I go outside. And it is kind of gray from the smoke. And it isn't even 8 pm when the real celebrating starts.
Did I mention that fireworks are illegal where I live? The police must be busy tonight.
I'm sick to my stomach and can't even eat the hamburgers and homemade ice cream I made for the family. I tell ya. My liberties are being crimped.
But, I live in a wonderful, patriotic city where we followed more than a mile of flags on both sides of the road. It is lovely and makes me teary.
Be thankful for what we have folks.
Let Freedom Ring!
